So you already know that I'm an anxious flier, which is why I don't want to try airlines I've never heard of like Allegiance Airlines. It's a great deal. That's what my son said. So we bought these great deal tickets for two to Phoenix. Then we learned that the great deal price did not include our seating or our luggage. We had to pay for each seat. We had to pay for each piece of luggage. And we had to drive to a little airport in Ogden to catch the flight.
Our plane was scheduled for take-off at four in the afternoon. We took off at seven. This is evidently a daily occurrence at Allegiance Air if you are to believe their reviews. The wait can be up to 18 hours if you're going from Las Vegas to Honolulu.
Don't get me wrong. It's still a good price, but you might want to take a sleeping mat and a blow-up pillow for your long stay at the airport. It was no big deal for Tom and me. We ate lunch and I read The Caine Mutiny on my Kindle. Tom played Backgammon on his laptop. For people with small children, it was a juggling act, and my guess is that it's not worth the savings.
We also saved money, because Jerry and Peggy were willing to drive us to Ogden. Greater love hath no couple. Thank you, Jerry and Peggy.
The flight was uneventful and smooth. Just like I like it.
